Scientists develop an early warning system that delivers wheat rust predictions directly to farmers’ phones
New research describes a revolutionary early warning system that can predict and mitigate wheat rust diseases in Ethiopia.
Researchers argue data from small satellites can help target agricultural interventions to locations where impact will be greatest.
Large-scale genomics will improve the yield, climate-resilience, and quality of bread wheat, new study shows
Scientists identified significant new chromosomal regions for wheat yield and disease resistance, which will speed up global breeding efforts.
Extensive use of wild grass-derived “synthetic hexaploid wheat” adds diversity and resilience to modern bread wheat
New study shows that improved bread wheat varieties obtained from crosses of durum wheat and goat grass are helping to ensure the crop’s future.
